Denplan Appoints Aon Employee Benefits As Its Auto-Enrolment Provider

Aon Employee Benefits has been appointed by Denplan as its preferred supplier for an auto-enrolment solution – Aon’s Littleblue.

Denplan is the UK’s leading dental plan specialist, with over 6,500 member dentists across the country, as well as providing over 1,900 companies with corporate dental plans, covering 180,000 employees. Denplan has chosen to use Aon’s auto-enrolment solution for its members - none of which have yet reached their auto-enrolment staging date. Aon’s Littleblue can support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as micro-employers with a pension solution which can significantly ease the burden of complying with the auto-enrolment regulations.

Clare Abrahams, head of auto-enrolment at Aon Employee Benefits, said, “Littleblue was expressly designed to help smaller organisations through the auto-enrolment process.  That is now approaching its climax in 2016 with staging to reach levels in the hundreds of thousands every quarter from the beginning of the year.  It is still an involved process in which the correct compliance is a key factor and small employers will welcome the streamlined approach that Littleblue offers. Denplan, with its thousands of members across the country, is an example of a multi-employer organisation which is aiming to make the auto-enrolment process easier for its members by offering a preferred solution. We are very pleased to be working with them and look forward to rolling Littleblue out across its member dental practices.”

Henry Clover, Deputy Chief Dental Officer at Denplan said, “We believe there are many dental practices that are not yet aware of how the law on workplace pensions has changed, or if they do know about the new regulations, they may not have started preparing for auto-enrolment yet. We are working closely with Aon to inform our members about the pension changes and how this could impact their practice. We are also encouraging them to start preparing for auto-enrolment at least six months before their staging date.  

“We believe Aon’s Littleblue auto-enrolment solution will save our members time and effort and help practices navigate smoothly through the process.”

Rise In Premium Growth Plus Low Insurance Take-Up Spells Opportunity For Asia Pacific

Aon Benfield has launched its ‘Welcome to Asia Pacific’ guide – a journey through sixteen of the region’s growing insurance and reinsurance markets to identify growth opportunities. As rapid economic development, population growth and urbanisation lead to increased insurance penetration, Asia Pacific represents a key area of growth in the global marketplace.

 

Aon Benfield’s Insurance Risk Study listed five Asian markets in the top 10 of its Country Opportunity Index, which identifies the world’s most promising property and casualty markets. Singapore comes third in the list of 50 countries, immediately followed by Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indonesia. With an insight into economics fundamentals, rating agency perspectives, political cultures and regulatory environments for local and foreign investors, this guide serves as a snapshot into the 16 countries for global market insurers and reinsurers seeking diversification or Asian firms looking for multi-national expansion. The findings show that India and China – representing the BRIC countries – enjoyed the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of non-life premium at 21% and 20% respectively from 2009 to 2013.

Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia also enjoyed significant growth with CAGR above 15%. While developing markets in Asia Pacific enjoyed fast growth, the report also reveals that the insurance penetration rates remain low. For the year ended 31 December 2013, non-life penetration rates for India (0.6%), China (1.1%), Vietnam (0.7%) and Indonesia (0.4%) were below the 1.4% Asia Pacific average and well behind developed markets in this region such as Australia, New Zealand and Korea. This highlights the potential of these markets in terms of future opportunities.

George Attard, Head of Aon Benfield Analytics for Asia Pacific, commented, “The Asia Pacific region is home to more than half the world’s population, with diverse societies, cultures, economies and regulatory regimes. Rapid economic development, population growth and urbanisation – combined with rapidly evolving insurance regulation – will lead to increasing insurance penetration. While this will create the potential for significant organic growth, there is also a notable opportunity for growth in specialty lines and product innovation. With many insurance and reinsurance companies already investing in this region and seeking to take advantage of the growth opportunities, an expert insight into these markets is crucial. Aon Benfield’s local teams have produced this guide as both an introduction to and exploration of sixteen key markets in Asia Pacific.”

Malcolm Steingold, CEO of Aon Benfield for Asia Pacific, added, “The greatest opportunity not only for 2015 but for the immediate future is the development of new products to cater for the expanding universe of risk and also to increase penetration into uncovered conventional risk across the region. We see growth opportunities across all the economies of Asia. The scale of the opportunity varies substantially from country to country and is due to a combination of factors including GDP growth, level of insurance penetration and the size of the population. Taking these factors into account China and Indonesia stand out with other Asian economies showing significant potential.”

The data for the guide has been collated from major rating agencies, regulators, industry associations, International Monetary Fund, World Bank, AXCO, Aon Risk Solutions, Aon Hewitt and Aon Benfield. In addition, the guide includes Aon Benfield’s own views of each market’s major risks, regulatory updates and market outlook.

Bupa Launches New Dental Network

Bupa has announced the launch of a new national Dental Network to help dental insurance customers find high quality and trusted dental practices.

The new Bupa Dental Plus Network will be formed of Bupa’s own dental centres, along with an ever-growing network of partner dental centres. It is expected that by March the network will reach 200 practices across the UK. The launch comes as nearly a quarter (24%) of respondents in a Bupa survey said they would visit the dentist more often if their dental clinic was in a more convenient location and it was easier to get an appointment at a time to fit around work.

Bupa insures over 130,000 employees through employer dental health plans. The new network will help them to find dental centres that are close to their home or place of work, as well as offering them a 20% discount on general dental treatment.

Patrick Watt, corporate director at Bupa, said: “We know how important it is for businesses to offer their employees access to high quality healthcare, including good value dental care, provided by dentists they can trust. That’s why we’ve established our new dental network – to give employers confidence that the dental care that their employees receive is high quality and trusted by us.”

The healthcare group has operated dental centres since 1999, providing customers with high quality, affordable dentistry in major UK cities. They are on track with their plans to own 50 dental centres by the end of 2015, becoming one of the largest private dental chains in the UK. All practices in the network are quality-assured and meet standards set out by the Care Quality Commission.
